Requesting lathe time, Waco TX
 
Hey everyone!

I'm a student at Baylor University. While I've been down here this semester, I've gotten a few requests. Unfortunately I wasn't able to transport my lathe this semester, and Baylor's wood lathe is reserved for sculpture majors. Is anyone in the Waco area willing to let me turn a few kits? I have my own wood, kits, and finishing supplies excluding micromesh pads.

Please let me know if we can work something out!

I'm moving to SW Ft. Worth in two weeks. You are welcome in my shop after I get set up.

Thank you for the offer! Unfortunately, Ft. Worth is too far of a trip during finals week, which is during the week you'll be moving down.

I'm looking for somewhere within ~30min of Waco.

I'm going to assume that if Ft. Worth is too far you might think East Dallas is to. Although Sachse is a much better place maybe that would be icing on the cake to make you want to make the trip. Let me know if you would like to get together to do some turning.

AAron,
Can't offer you his lathe, and I don't know his schedule, he is a school teacher, but we have a member just outside Corsicana... that's not too far from Waco...

And we have two members in Waco... search the membership list under location for Waco... you might try a PM to them.

How much time are you looking for? When are you thinking?

East Dallas would also be too far in my current situation. Thank you for the offer!

Corsicana is a bit far, but thank you for the suggestion. I'm rather limited when it comes to transportation right now.

I searched the member database and sent a few people PMs, but got no responses. Only one person listed under Waco has been active in either 2015 and 2016.

I'm looking for enough time to turn about 6 Sierras. As for when, I'd prefer on a weekend.



I should also note that my primary mode of transportation is a bike. I have a few friends with cars who may be willing to drive me to somewhere within ~30min of Baylor, but I'm not likely to be able to travel outside of that.

I live n Belton about 40 miles from Waco. I can arrange time on a weekend if you can get here. Maybe next weekend is better.

Thank you for the offer! I'll check with a few friends to see if that could be arranged.
